Scribbly Gums Art Quilt

Finally my burnt leaves quilt is finished and I have named it "Scribbly Gums". I'm hoping to get it accepted into an exhibition.

The leaves are burnt and melted organza and felt. The background is layered and burnt vintage papers, eco-dyed silks, tissue paper and wrapping paper on a free-machine quilted background.

Many gum trees depend on fire to release their seeds, After a bushfire new growth is rapid. In this piece beauty springs up from the burnt layers beneath.
